I'll volunteer for the next photography job in ANY F-18 to get those kind of images .. Absolutely the BEST shuttle video ... Better than watching it on TV ... They forgot one thing .. Northern California images would had been nice too

These F18s are based at Edwards AFB in SoCal. My guess is they weren't budgeted for a trip to NorCal, although I agree that would have been cool to see the NorCal scenes too.

Very cool. I shed a tear or two every time I see the wonderful coverage of our LAST flight of OV-105 Endeavour. This was also the next to last flight of 747 N905NA (NASA905)

They did flyover NorCal. There are still pictures on the LA Times website. Would have liked to seen the flyover US Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale where it was built as well. This is a great video. Thanks for posting it.

I was in DC two days before they landed one of them at Dulles. I didn't have a choice to stay but I REALLY wish I could have seen this in person.

It would have been an excellent visual show if the Thunderbirds did the escorting the Shuttle, since they were in Salinas for that air show.

I agree the in flight coverage from the F-18 was excellent, but no video from Norcal !!!

As I watch this video of the final Space Shuttle tour to it's final home in CA we should all be reminded of the outstanding value of the program and the talented people that made history for all of us to remember. The video was spectacular and truly appreciated by many diehard employees of the Aerospace and Defense Industry!

So amazing thank you! I am going to miss the space program. Think of the time it started technologically and look where are today. Imagine what it could be going forward.

Loved the call sign and loved the video. Like the photographer said, it would have been great if those images could have been broadcast live.

The most amazine pictures of the final flight of the endeavor, as a pilot , I felt as if I was part of the landing, great photography, thank you.

Thunderbirds escorting on one side and Blue Angels on the other. THAT would have been a sight.

To improve the aerodynamics for the 747 to fly properly, same goes for the extra vertical tails on the 747.

It cuts down on drag from the rear and also keeps the airflow around the tail of the 747 smooth

I guess I had bad information. NASA905 came to Houston KEFD for the Wings Over Houston air show.
